now. we are watching these sensors. so far they haven't changed color. so far they are still showing green. but we'll continue to check that if you are heading towards the macarthur maze something to be aware of. we also still have this injury crash in city streets in san francisco at 6th and folsom. police are still on scene and apparently one lane of 6th street is blocked near the intersection. that's a check of your traffic. here's tracy with your forecast. hey, thanks, elizabeth. -- that's a look at your weather. back up to you. california's first execution in nearly five years has been put on hold and may not happen until next year. anne makovec is at san quentin prison in marin county to tell us why. >> reporter: good morning. it's a plan that was in effect earlier this week. if it had stuck, albert brown would be dead but he is waking up this morning here in san quentin because of a decision made last night by a federal judge. brown would have been california's first execution in almost five years. but judge fogel suspended the execution until he finishes reviewing a lawsuit against
california's lethal injection procedure. concerns that it's cruel and unusual punishment if the first of three drugs doesn't work properly, the inmate could suffer extreme pain from the third drug which stops the heart of. the family of brown's victim just wants it over with. here is her brother speaking about what it was like after his 15-year-old sister disappeared. >> i remember getting in the truck with my father and driving up and down the -- [ pause ] >> -- driving up and down the streets calling her name. >> reporter: now, the stay of execution is being appealed to the state court of appeals and can also go to the u.s. supreme court. the family of that victim is hoping that eventually brown will be executed but time is running out. at midnight thursday night
technically friday morning, one of the state's drugs expires and likely won't be restocked until next year. now, two other inmates here at san quentin, michael morales and mitchell sims also have appeals pending. they have until tomorrow to file with the state supreme court. they are argue the same thing, cruel and unusual punishment. juliette? >> the legal loopholes. all right. anne makovec thank you. some common ground between two candidates running for california governor. it was the first debate between democrat jerry brown and republican meg whitman. they both agree that the budget gridlock in sacramento has to be broken. but they clashed over possible solutions. during the squareoff, brown touted his political experience as whitman stuck to her platform. their next debate is saturday in fresno. as for who won? well, california viewers are split. our exclusive eyewitness news poll taken after the debate shows brown with a 3% lead over
whitman. that's within the 4.5% margin of error. 23% said there was no clear winner. new developments in the san bruno explosion. the state won't get any federal help. fema turned down a request for millions in federal disaster aid. a spokesman said pg&e can pay off the recovery bill on its own. however, fema will reimburse the state up to 75% of the firefighting expense. the san bruno mayor plans to meet with federal officials next week to request more money. meantime, the death toll is now at eight in the deadly pipeline explosion. james franco lived just down the street from the blast site. he had survived the fire but was badly burned. this morning, a mystery as to who left a dead bear on the steps of a san leandro store. the bear was found outside the terrace market, a small grocery
store on foothill boulevard. check this out. 3900-pound animal had -- the 300-pound animal had been shot in the shoulder. he was probably shot somewhere else and then just dumped off. anyone with information is asked to call state fish & game department. some call her the serial scratcher and this morning, she will face a judge. police say nancy chi ni damaged a mercedes, a bmw, a honda crv, at valley fair in san jose. the 30-year-old is also linked to chases in milpitas, pleasanton, sunnyvale and santa clara. she will give her plea in court today. her bond is $1 million. 6:05. another check on weather and traffic. elizabeth is going to fill us in on our commute. hey, elizabeth. >> hey, juliette. yeah, let's go out to 880 in oakland. big rig on the shoulder northbound 880 at 23rd and it's leaking milk. apparently joe with the kcbs
phone force just drove by the scene and says 23rd on-ramp is also partially blocked. so watch out for that. in the meantime, closer to the coliseum, all these headlights are moving southbound. pretty quiet commute past the oakland airport towards hayward. northbound is fine. watch out for the truck leaking milk by the 23rd exit. another accident in oakland westbound 580 at grand avenue. turns out it's a noninjury crash. the car did roll over landed on its roof. but chp says they are blocking of the left lane. so far no big delay to traffic. but again, we'll continue to watch that. that's a check of your traffic. here's tracy with your forecast. hey, thanks, elizabeth. it was perfect yesterday like around 4:00 in the afternoon. >> it was perfect? so what's my grade for yesterday? uhm, >> an a. >> we had low humidity. we had a decent breeze
especially closer to the marina off the bay. that probably helped to feel nice but it was pretty hot in livermore. 105 degrees. 104 in santa rosa. 99 in san jose. 92 in oakland. 99 today in livermore, 93 in santa rosa, 91 in san jose and 82 in oakland. so temperatures are backing off today. up to 11 degrees cooler in santa rose. 93 in sonoma and santa rosa. 88 degrees in palo alto. 90 degrees in santa clara. 84 in hayward and 96 in pleasanton. more bay area temperatures more cooler temperatures coming up. back to you. >> thank you. 6:07. major cuts at uc-berkeley. why athletics programs are getting kicked to the curb. plus, cracking down on lou hogs. the new law and penalties for bikers who modify their rides.
and the long-time tradition kids are closing the books on. it's a sign of the times. [ male announcer ] as the ceo of hp,
carly fiorina laid off 30,000 workers. when you're talking about massive layoffs, which we did... perhaps the work needs to be done somewhere else. [ male announcer ] fiorina shipped jobs to china. and while californians lost their jobs, fiorina tripled her salary. bought a million dollar yacht. and five corporate jets.
i'm proud of what i did at hp. [ male announcer ] carly fiorina. outsourcing jobs. out for herself.

berkeley baseball, men's and women's gymnastics and lacrosse cut to save $5 million by 2014. also impacted cal's rugby program the most successful program at cal with 25 national titles since 1980. the rugby team will now be made a club sport. >> again, this is very painful decision. and as i said to the students earlier today, deciding which program was the most difficult part of the plan. >> in all, 163 athletes and 13 coaches are impacted by the cuts. baseball has been played at cal since 1892. but it was the motion expensive program to maintain on campus. this morning former president jimmy carter will stay in the hospital. he was admitted yesterday due to an upset stomach.
the sickness developed on a flight from atlanta. it's unclear whether he will continue his book tour. aig is on the fast track to repay its taxpayer debt. a plan should be announced in the next few days according to the "wall street journal." the move will all reduce the government's stake in the insurance giant. all right. 6:12 now. city leaders clearing the air. the item now banned at even more stores in san francisco. and lights, cameras, shop. where the east bay will see its first wal-mart supercenter. ,, ,,,,,,,, my heart kept speeding up and slowing down.

good morning. things are very busy in the east bay. chp working three separate accidents. first one westbound 580 at grand avenue. chp and fire crews are on scene. car overturned. no injuries. but they do have to wait for a tow truck to get there. we are not seeing any big delay to our drive times with any of these accidents, there is no huge delay. there was a stalled truck leaking milk, apparently spilled on the shoulder. possibly blocking one lane. this is northbound 880 approaching embarcadero. so they are waiting for crews to get out there, as well as this new one southbound 880 in san leandro approaching
lewelling. it was a solo spinout blocking at least one lane of traffic. we are seeing a little bit of slowing there in a couple of sensors in southbound direction. doing a quick bridge check at the bay bridge toll plaza, the metering lights have not been turned on yet. give it another five minutes or so and it will get busier but for now small delays in some lanes. otherwise no problems under the incline heading into san francisco, san mateo bridge seeing no issues all morning. this has been a great ride. westbound 92 in the commute direction. traffic towards the peninsula and here's traffic towards hayward off the high-rise. nice and light there, as well. about 13 minutes in either direction. this is our first non-"spare the air" day that we have seen in quite a while and so far everything is running on time for mass transit. you're always encouraged to use mass transit and bart, ace, muni, caltrain everything is on schedule. remember our radio partners, kcbs 740-am and 106.9-fm. that's a check of your traffic. here's tracy with your forecast. hey, thanks, elizabeth. still summertime out there with
temperatures today not as hot as yesterday, especially around the bay. coastal highs today ranging from 50 to 55 with partly cloudy conditions and a few areas of fog for the morning. and out the door for the bay and inland look at those temperatures. from the mid-50s to the upper 60s. at 6:00 a.m.? yeah, partly cloudy and still mild. it is another hot day inland but not as hot as yesterday. today's temperatures just shy of 100 degrees in our hottest spot. around the bay, up to the lower 80s. and along the coastline, we're going to still keep a chance of some fog in the forecast with temperatures in the mid- to the upper 60s. here's a look at what we're watching. satellite and our radar showing that we do have some clouds coming up from the south. all compliments of a low pressure system. it's essentially going to help break down that high pressure system that's been giving us the hot temperatures. so today we cool down and we continue to cool down well into the weekend. highs upper 80s in palo alto, 87 in mountain view, 93 in cupertino, 93 in morgan hill.
99 yesterday in san jose. today 91. hey, that ain't bad. 105 yesterday in livermore, today 99. it's a gradual cooldown. 93 in walnut creek. 92 pleasant hill. and the lower 80s from oakland to alameda to san leandro. north bay locations, in sonoma today 93. 84 novato. 83 kentfield. 75 degrees in san francisco. one of the places that will have one of the biggest cooldowns here in the city. yesterday 92, today 70s. we continue to cool down thursday, friday, saturday, sunday. monday and tuesday, temperatures reboun that's a look at your weather. back up to you. pg&e says about 360 customers in napa are still in the dark because of hot weather. it's the same situation with some 100 people in the bayview area and 25 customers with r without power around the east bay. a look at our top stories today. a death row inmate is breathing
new life. the execution for albert greenwood brown has been put off for now. a judge says the court needs more time to assess the state's new lethal injection procedures. also fema won't be sending any money to california in the wake of the san bruno pipeline explosion. it turned down a request for millions in federal disaster aid saying pg&e can foot the bill. however, fema will pay for the majority of the firefighter expenses. people are waking up undecided after watching the first gubernatorial debate. our eyewitness news poll showing jerry brown holds a 3% lead over meg whitman but that is within the margin of error. their next debate is saturday. the streets will be more quiet in california. the governor just signed a bill that cracks down on modified motorcycles. bikers can no longer replace federally mandated emissions control devices. those changes often make bikes
louder and increase pollution. some violators will be find up to $100 for first time violations. 6:19. the claim mouthwash makers are being forced to spit out. and can you hear me now? the disturbing find for people who like to chat on the cell phone. ,,,,,,
greed. the wealthiest corporations. billions in profits and bonuses. and the sacramento politicians just gave these same corporations a new billion dollar handout... paid for by cuts to education and public safety with no guarantee of creating one new job. but we can change this by voting yes on proposition 24. prop 24 repeals the billion dollar giveaway and protects our schools and communities. yes on prop 24. it's time to give us a break... not the big corporations.
here's a beautiful photo of a cruise ship here in the bay. san francisco today 75 degrees. that's down from 92 yesterday. we will be cooler across the bay area with 82 in alameda, 84 in san mateo and 84 degrees in hayward. more bay area cities and today's cooler temperatures coming up. >> thank you. 6:23. the east bay will soon see its first wal-mart supercenter. last night the antioch city council approved a plan to expand the store on lonetree way. it will now include a bakery, produce and full service deli. wal-mart has been wanting to expand the store in antioch for the past six years. this morning, the fda is warning three companies to clean up their mouthwash ads. it's targeting johnson and
john, listerine and cvs. the feds say there is no proof their brands remove plaque. all three companies will work with the fda they say. scientists may have discovered a better way to detect prostate cancer. right now, the screening tests for the disease is less than 50% accurate. but researchers in england say they have found a set of biomarkers that can detect prostate cancer with 90% accuracy. if the find something proven true in larger studies, doctors may be able to develop a common blood test for the disease. and it is a sign of the times. children like ebooks. parents not so much. it's part of the 2010 kids and family reading report. it's being released today. kids say devices like the kindle or ipad would make reading more fun compared to actual books. the same survey finds the majority of parents don't plan to bit devices. it's all the buzz in the reality world this morning, the wrong winner, the wrong one
announced on live tv. check it out. >> i don't know what to say. this is not -- this is a complete accident. i'm so sorry. it's amanda. i'm so sorry. >> it's amanda! that's a clip from the next top model, australia. the host got the winner wrong. she found out after the acceptance speech was delivered. the runner-up was gracious on stage and congratulated the real winner who gets the modeling contract. all right. a new study found that in four states that have banned using hand-held cell phones collisions have gone up. our question. day, what do you think is the answer for dealing with distracted driving? jennifer says...

vacation. good morning to you, it's wednesday, september 29. i'm juliette goodrich. sydnie is on vacation. california's first execution in nearly five years has been put on hold and it may
not happen until next year. anne makovec is at san quentin prison in marin county to tell us why. good morning, anne. >> reporter: good morning. albert greenwood brown still alive this morning. if the plan that was in effect monday would still be in effect, woke dead right now. he would have been killed at midnight but a decision by a federal judge -- brown would have been the first execution in almost five years but judge jeremy fogel suspended the execution until he reviews a lawsuit against california's lethal injection procedure concerns that it's cruel and unusual punishment causing an inmate undue pain. this argument and this judge stopped executions here in california back in 2006. since then the state offered
the inmate a choice, one drug or three drugs, and brown refused to decide. the stay of execution is being appealed to the state court of appeals and can also go to the u.s. supreme court. time is running out. midnight thursday, friday morning technically, the state's supply of one of the drugs expires and they are not going to get restocked in those supplies until next year. so if brown is not executed by midnight thursday, again friday morning, october 1, then it's going to be another several months at least. >> anne makovec, thank you. 6:31 now. the feds have sent california a message, don't count on us to help pay for the san bruno explosion. fema turned down a request for millions in federal disaster aid. a spokesman said pg&e can pay the recovery bill on its own. however, fema will reimburse the state up to 75% of the
firefighting expenses. the west nile virus has struck the bay area. scientists discovered mosquitos in antioch and a dead bird in oakley that tested positive for the disease. around 15 mosquitos were trapped near lonetree way and deer valley road the first insects in antioch this year to test positive for west nile virus. technicians will continue to inspect and treat the area. we have been dealing with record-breaking temperatures this week and there are more in store for us possibly. tracy humphrey has the answer. hey, trace. >> hey, thanks, juliette. well, we are expecting temperatures to start to back off today. they are going to be cooling down a bit and talk about a nice start to the day. but something we haven't seen in a while. some high clouds. past couple of mornings we have been nothing but clear. looking out toward the bay bridge, some high clouds are coming in today and that's going to be the drill. more clouds coming in, compliments of a low pressure system down to the south. the bottom line, it's going to help cool us down.
yesterday 105 in livermore. 104 in santa rosa. 99 in san jose. 92 in oakland. these are all record high temperatures for yesterday's date. today 99 in livermore, 93 in santa rosa, 91 in san jose, and 82 in oakland. we are cooling down today. we'll take a look at some more bay area cities and today's cooler temperatures in just a few moments. in the meantime, for your traffic, here's elizabeth. >> thank you, tracy. i didn't need wet towels to fall asleep last night. i know, it's so much better. all right. southbound 880 at lewelling traffic is really beginning to back up here. turns out there were two separate accidents in san leandro. and only one lane is getting by right now. so we really are starting to see a backup. kcbs airborne just flew over the scene and said it's jammed back to the boulevard. coliseum live look, better 66 to downtown oakland. also in oakland dealing with this accident here sounds like traffic is backed up to close to half a mile westbound 580 at
grand avenue. there was an accident involving a car that overturned landing on its roof. no injuries but chp and fire crews are still on scene and they are also waiting for a tow crew which has yet to arrive. at the bay bridge toll plaza, metering lights are on. so as promised, things look a whole lot different here than 10 minutes ago backed up just beyond the first overcrossing. back to you, juliette. >> thank you. investigators are trying to figure out who dumped the corpse of a black bear outside a san leandro grocery store. 300-pound bear was found sunday evening in front of the terrace market. it had been shot in the shoulder. the alameda county sheriff's department says a white dodge pickup was seen speeding away from the scene. >> we were thinking, oh, somebody drunk or my little kid thought it was a dog or somebody shot it and as we got closer, it's like, holy toledo, it's a bear! >> state fish and game which is investigating says there is no indication bears live in san
leandro. it's bear hunting now in california but it's illegal to dump a carcass and waste game meat. police say they have a serial vandal on their hands. a woman they say has very specific targets in alameda and santa clara counties. kcbs radio's matt bigler joins us now valley fair shopping center where some of the crimes took place. good morning to you, matt. >> reporter: that's right. good morning to you. yeah, this happened over the weekend here in the parking lot of the valley fair mall in san jose. police caught a woman who was vandalizing three cars. she was basically scratching up the paint job on three luxury cars a bmw, a mercedes and a toyota crv. turns out not her first offense. police say that 30-year-old nancy chi ni of san jose has been arrested seven times since june for similar acts of vandalism not only here in santa clara county but also in alameda county. police are scratching their heads over a motive on this one. this is police sergeant ronnie lopez.
>> you know, we really don't know. during the course of the investigation we tried to get a statement from her, but we were not able to really establish a motive behind why she is doing that. >> now, ni is being held on a million dollars bail here in san jose. seems like it's pretty high. but it turns out that when she was arrested last weekend, she was already out on bail for a similar offense that happened earlier. we are learning some other things about her. she apparently drives a bmw herself, a 2009 black bmw. police have found sharp pair of scissors in her purse on more than one occasion. and in 2006, she was -- she pled no contest to one act of prostitution. i'm matt bigler in san jose reporting live for cbs 5. >> thank you, matt. the first debate between the top two candidates for governor is now history. in the court of public opinion, it appears to be a draw. an eyewitness news poll showing 40% believe democrat jerry brown won with republican meg
whitman close behind at 37%. and that's within the margin of error. the remaining 23% felt there was no clear winner in last night's debate. the hot topics, the economy and jobs. >> my plan is to invest in clean energy, in green tech of the future. i don't want to go back to the 19th century listen to the oil companies from texas. i want to stand firm on ab-2 2, our climate and new energy jobs bill. >> and texas has the very best business climate in the country. it is not a perfect state by any means. but they have ombudsmen in charge of every industry who help you get through the red tape. they are recruiting industries because they have very low corporate taxes, they have no personal income tax, and most importantly... >> their next debate is scheduled for saturday in fresno. more trouble ahead for city council members in bell. a group said it has collected enough signatures to force a
recall election. all four including the mayor face corruption charges. a report found the city leaders were making huge salaries in the small town of about 40,000 people. you'll no longer find cigarettes at stores in san francisco. city leaders gave final approval to ban tobacco sales at all stores with pharmacies. previously, the city's tobacco ban only applied to drugstores. the mayor has indicated he will sign the bill into law. contra costa supervisors also cracking down on smoking but in a different way. they adopted a new antismoking ordinance yesterday. and that law will prohibit people from smoking tobacco and medical marijuana in new multi- unit housing complexes built in unincorporated parts of the county. the ban includes balconies, patios, carports, even inside the resident's apartment. landlords could evict tenants to violate the ordinance. the federal government can keep funding embryonic still
cell research at least for now. that's what the u.s. court of appeals in washington decided yesterday granting a request from the obama administration. the white house is in the process of appealing an earlier judge's order. now, that order blocked the funding concerned it may violate a law against federal funding of embryo destruction. the administration argued that stopping the research could harm scientific progress toward potentially life-saving medical treatment. this morning, security official in europe say a terror plot to wage a mumbai-style shooting spree in britain, france and germany is still a threat. meanwhile, the cia has stepped up drone attacks in pakistan aimed at al qaeda units suspected of planning terrorist attacks throughout europe. yesterday the eiffel tower was evacuated after an anonymous bomb threat was called in. it is the second time the monument has been cleared in
the past week. no suspicious objects were found. 6:39 now. how long do you talk on your cell phone? the hearing damage to expect if it's an hour a day. plus, get ready for nintendo's new 3-d gaming device. the unique feature and when it goes on sale. ,, ♪

good morning. new problems now for bay bridge commuters. we just got a call from martin with the kcbs phone force and there is a stall unfortunately on the upper deck close to treasure island. so one lane is blocked. bridge crews are aware of it but unfortunately we're left with this mess at the toll plaza. it is backed up all the way to the 880 overcrossing at 6:43, not even 7:00 yet. so give yourself some extra time if you are heading into san francisco crossing the bay bridge. in the meantime still dealing with a couple of accidents in the east bay. they actually issued a traffic alert for this one. westbound 580 at lakeshore, a car overturned. no serious injuries but a flatbed tow truck is there now. they are hooking up the car trying to clear it from lanes but traffic is backed up from at least park boulevard. you can see slowing there on some of our sensors. not looking too good in san leandro either. there were two separate
accidents in this stretch of southbound 880 approaching lewelling. they have got both those accidents cleared from lanes so all traffic is able to get by okay. but you can see that line of slow traffic from at least davis street. and there is your drive time for that stretch of southbound 880 still in the heavy stages. meaning red, which is not good. looks like 29 minutes almost a half hour to get you from the may see down to 238. this is a live look near the coliseum. you can see the oracle there in the distance. this is southbound traffic. so you will start to see brake lights again once you hit davis street. other approaches to the bay bridge we are still looking okay down the eastshore freeway. we should have a camera right there at ashby. slow and go through berkeley but not too bad overall. this is the westbound commute direction and mass transit no "spare the air" day so kind of a different story for mass transit riders. we have been sealing a lot of "spare the air" days recently. you are always encouraged to use mass transit and everything is on time, has been all morning. so bart, ace, muni, caltrain. remember our radio partners,
kcbs 740-am and 106.9-fm. you will get the latest, greatest traffic information. that's a check of your traffic. here's tracy with your forecast. hey, thanks, elizabeth. latest and greatest. >> like that plug? latest and greatest weather also on kcbs radio with weather updates during the morning and afternoon here's a look courtesy of our camera at mount vaca. and we got a nice sunrise on the way. it is at 7:03 this morning. sunset at 6:55. bear in mind we just passed our autumnal equinox when you typically have 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of nighttime. so we're pretty close there. here's a look at the high clouds on approach coming in from the south. high clouds associated with the system that's going to be cooling us down today. temperatures outside from the lower to the mid-50s along the coats and from the mid-50s to the 60s inland. partly cloudy and mild inland and for the bay and a few areas of fog with partly cloudy conditions for the coast. inland today, mostly sunny and
very warm. not as hot. temperatures up to 99 today. yesterday, we saw temperatures in the 90s around the bay. today, up to the lower 80s. and sunshine with a few areas of fog along the coastline with temperatures in the mid to the upper 60s. this is a low pressure system i referenced earlier. you saw the high clouds in the mount vaca cam shot, this is where they are coming from. low pressure system down in baja and that's bringing in the clouds and that's also going to be basically breaking down that high pressure system a bit so not as hot today and that will be the trend throughout the rest of the week. 90 degrees today in santa clara, 93 in cupertino, mid-80s in san mateo and in redwood city. east bay locations, from the mid to the upper 90s in pittsburg and brentwood. lower 90s from pleasant hill to walnut creek. 93 in dublin. 96 pleasanton. and the 80s from hayward to oakland with the mid-70s today in richmond and in berkeley. north bay locations, 72 in sausalito, 83 in kentfield, 83
san anselmo and lower 90s from petaluma to sonoma and napa and let's not forget san francisco. if you are driving into the city today, definitely cooler than yesterday. yesterday's high in the lower 90s. today the mid-70s! yeah, we continue to cool down thursday, friday into the weekend and then by next week, we start to rebound again. that's a look at your weather. back up to you. >> thank you. a well-known silicon valley computer company says its profits will be higher than first thought. here's details from jason brooks with kcbs and >> good morning, juliette. analysts and investors and shareholders love hearing this kind of news. hewlett-packard increasing its earnings projection towards next fiscal year beginning in october up to $5.05 to $5.15 per share. that's topping analyst projections by quite a bit. they were expecting about $4.99 per share. also revenue would increase about 5 to 7%. still no word on hp's next ceo.
many reports suggest that hp should be naming a successor to the ousted mark hurd imminently. in fact, yesterday we saw some rumors that apple's chief operating officer tim cook would be the likely choice. and that sent hp shares spiking at that time bringing apple shares down but that won't happen, he will probably succeed steve jobs and why would he move away from apple? but hp's shares higher by 2% now. that's going they want dow being one of the 30 components to the dow. the mortgage bankers association says that we saw refinance applications drop 1.6% last week. that's the fourth straight weekly decline. despite the fact that mortgage rates keep falling. 30-year loan averaging 4.38%. that's 7 basis points lower than what they were the week before. stock market is down now across
the board slightly. dow down by 15, nasdaq down by one. s&p 500 is off by 2. facebook continues its push to be the place where you go to communicate with anybody and any form possible. all things digital is reporting that facebook is talking to skype about a partnership between the two companies. that way you would be able to go to facebook or skype and video chat with your friends. makes sense for both sides. skype has 560 million users worldwide a little more than the total users on facebook. facebook is trying to make a bigger push overseas and most of skype's users are indeed overseas. >> i don't know. what do you think about that video chat on facebook? i think people like to create their identity through pictures and not necessarily what they look like that given day. >> as long as i'm not doing it first thing in the morning i'm okay with that. >> that's what i'm talking about. all right. [ laughter ] >> jason brooks with kcbs and, thank you. hey, can you hear me now? you won't if you talk on your cell phone a lot.
researchers say all that chatter can cause slight hearing damage. it mainly affects people who talk on their phone for more than one hour a day. they would have problems understanding certain words and consonants. don't count on getting a nintendo 3-d for christmas. that's because it won't be out in time. the hand-held game device is 3- d with no glasses required. it's set to go on sale sometimes in the u.s. before april. people in japan will be the first to play it in february. a new study found that in four states that have banned using a hand-held cell phone collision rates went up. maybe people are more distracted trying to hide the fact they are texting. so that was our question of the day. rive with their hands at ten and two?"
all right. let's take a look now at what's happening at 7:00 on "the early show." maggie rodriguez joins us from new york. hi, maggie. >> hi, juliette. i have to admit i'm guilty of having my cell phone on the set. but i only use it to check e- mails from home or if the babysitter writes or, you know, latest wires and everything. it's one of the new iphones, do you ever one? >> i do. and i have mine near the set, too because it's kids and so on. >> maybe we can do that face to face thing one of these days. >> we are doing it now. >> that skype facebook thing. let me tell you what's coming up here this morning. we have bob woodward the legendary journalist in the studio talking about his new book that's gotten so much publicity called obama's wars. he will join us. we'll also focus on a new

alive here this morning at san quentin prison. last evening, a federal judge jeremy fogel, the same judge who stopped executions in california in 2006, suspended brown's execution until he finishes reviewing a lawsuit against california's lethal injection procedure. concerns that it is cruel and unusual punishment. if the first of three drugs administered doesn't work properly, the inmate could suffer extreme pain from the third drug, which stops the heart. now, you may remember a marin county judge ruled monday that brown could not prove he would be in pain and refused the stay. but this ongoing lawsuit is what's holding that execution up. the stay of execution is being appealed to the state court of appeals and could go to the u.s. supreme court. the time is running out. at midnight friday morning one of the state's drugs expires and won't be restocked until next year. two other inmates, michael morales and mitchell simms have until tomorrow to file an
appeal with the state supreme court under the same grounds, cruel and unusual punishment. >> thank you, anne makovec at san quentin. also new developments in the san bruno explosion. the state won't get any federal help. fema turned down a request for millions in federal disaster aid. a spokesman said pg&e could pay off the recovery bill on its own. however, fema will reimburse the state up to 75% of the firefighting expenses. the san bruno mayor plans to meet with federal officials next week to request more money. also democrat jerry brown was a winner by a whisker in yesterday's gubernatorial debate according to an eyewitness news survey. 40% of those polled felt brown won. republican meg whitman close behind at 37%. that's well within the margin of error. the remaining 23% felt there was no clear winner at uc- davis. lots going on. we'll start with a look at the bay bridge. we are seeing a lot of brake
lights. there is a slow crawl up the incline now. crews are working to clear a stalled car near treasure island. there was a three-car accident in the backup. that's quickly moved to the shoulder. but yeah, we're left with this, a lot of slow traffic. and it is backed up well into the macarthur maze. once you get past the tunnel, things move better. traffic heading into san francisco looks good closer to the first exit that fremont street exit. here's a new accident in san francisco from the other direction. negotiable 101 at cesar chavez. john with the kcbs phone force called us about this one. he says this is an accident involving a motorcycle. traffic just beginning to back up in that area. updating you on a couple of earlier accidents, one in san leandro south 880 near lewelling boulevard, all lanes now clear but it's still really jammed from davis street and they cancelled this traffic alert in oakland westbound 580 at lakeshore avenue so all lanes open here as well but it's still slow as you pass that now earlier accident scene. whoo, a lot to get to. that's a check of your traffic.
